Conor McGregor takes part in a wheelchair boxing match for charities in September
Conor McGregor will return to martial arts in September, but it won’t be a return that the masses could foresee.
The occasion? A wheelchair boxing match.
The former UFC two-division champion will compete against social media star and renowned impressionist Al Foran, who frequently imitates McGregor.

Tyron Woodley predicts knockout in the 4th round in Jake Paul’s boxing match
Even if McGregor wanted to participate in a regular benefit boxing match, he wouldn’t be able to.
In his last mixed martial arts fight, the “Notorious” unfortunately broke his shin and fibula against No. 1 UFC lightweight contender Dustin Poirier in the waning moments of the first round in the UFC 264 main event .
While McGregor won’t be able to return to the UFC Octagon anytime soon, he appears to be busy while he recovers.
UFC President Dana White recently said it would be a year for the former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion to fully recover from his broken tibia and fibula.
Until then, his charity wheelchair boxing match with Foran will take place on September 11th.
Conor McGregor is back at the gym and posted photos to prove it: “There are no limits to what we can overcome”
